Making a photo look 3d

I am fairly new to CA2 and am trying to make an 18th birthday card. I have a sports car as the central theme and am trying to make it 3d so it stands out more from the remainder of the card. Can anyone explain in simple terms how I can achieve this please?

Take a look at this tutorial. It may help. It is for DSA2 but should work in CAP2.

Thanks for the link Wendy. I learnt something new from the video, which is excellent, but wasn't quite the effect I wished to achieve. I would like the car to really stand out like it is coming off the page ie: 3d

Maybe you could look at adding some depth and shading via Effects.

How about using the Decoupage tool...?

Oh yes, that's a good idea too!

Similar to the pop up effect in the tutorial Wendy posted above... here's some car themed images using the same out of bounds technique. More impact than the family on the beach in the tut.

You could just use the Materials Slider to create a bevel edge, easily? You'll find it in the studio tabs on the right of the screen (make sure that the "Styles" tab is selected) and it is at the bottom of the styles tab, just above the Arrange tab. Just select the car and drag the slider along until you get a raised effect that looks right.
