I am using GIMP to edit my images. I have a regular playing card from a top down, 2D view. I want it to appear as though it were being tossed very quickly. I wanted to remove the top down view and add some speed blur. I have checked many of GIMP's features, but cannot find what I am looking for. Any help or similar suggestions?

Sounds to me like you want a Motion Blur:

You can find this filter in the image menu under FiltersBlurMotion Blur
