It is very important to plan a layout before starting to make your card. In the beginning I used to "make it up as I went along", but soon learned that it took me longer to make the card plus I often ended up wishing I had done something differently when it was too late. I usually do a quick sketch of the card and have all material laid out before starting.
Using the correct adhesive is of paramount importance.You don't want to end up with wrinkly paper or see big blobs of glue. So choose your adhesive with care.
Finally - remember that "less is more", don't overload your project with embellishments etc, a simple layout with a distinct focal point works much better.
