I'm studying on how to create 3d objects. One of these is a rotating playing card.

I get 2 images (one for the front face and one for the back of the card) and import them. I've tried playing around, putting them in 2 different layers, but that's as far as I go.

Any tips?

Put both card back & card front in the comp & make 'em 3D.
Move the card back to +0.5 in z-space.
Move the card front to -0.5 in z-space.
Make a 3D null object. Don't move it yet.
Parent card front & card back to the null.
Now you can move & rotate the null however you wish.
