Stick / gel glues such as pritt stick are used for gluing card and paper. These are safe and easy to apply.  

Spray glues are a really good way to apply glue uniformly to a surface. Surfaces can then be pushed carefully together. The advantage of using this type of spray glue is that the paper / card can be pealed back and repositioned several times before the adhesive properties of the glue disappear.

Photo mount is a stronger form of spray mount and is suitable for photographs or thicker card.

Double sided tape is a semi-permanent method of joining modelling materials. It is very useful when joining plastic and card based materials.

Brass fasteners are very useful when joining modelling card together, especially if movement is needed. This card model below rotates revealing different statements promoting the sale of a particular type of phones. The brass fastener allows this to happen.
