Yes, it will void the warranty, however the nexus doesn't have a flash counter, so once you restore the original image and relock the bootloader, the care center won't be able to tell that the bootloader was unlocked in first place.
Restoring nexus 7 to original condition is very easy, check out wug's nexus toolkit, it's very easy to use and had a wide variety of options.
