to do a nice 3d flip like your image shows, then newt is correct - and I am pretty sure I have seen an example (probably by ROJOhound) on how to do it a couple years ago.
another cheap effect you can do is adjust the width down to nothing, then bring it back up to the card width. It doesn't look as nice, but takes very little processing power, and no plugins...
and if you do it fast enough, it is hard to tell the difference.
my sample has a deck of cards from a tutorial I saw years ago that has a nice shuffle example and other ideas to get you started on a card game... not sure if the tutorial still exists or not.
