get a good spray adhesive from your art supply's usually in the graphic arts department....lay your paper upside down(outside, the fumes are yucky)on newspaper or something else disposable and spray as directed....pick up by the corners and careful lay it on your wood....put a clean sheet of paper down on top of that and burnish it down with something like a roller or a piece of cardboard....then lift the paper and should have a nicely adhered piece....

For really heavy card stock, like matt board, I would dilute elmer's a bit with water and brush it on the back, lay it on the wood, protect it with something like wax paper and weigh it down with books until dried...

spray adhesive works well but I really don't know how long that stuff the cans, I think some are "repositionable" which I would think means you can lift them and move them...not good for long term adherence....

Also, make sure that the wood is sealed or you may not have a very long-lasting piece of art.  If you don't seal the wood before you apply your artwork you may end up with the artwork yellowing or coming off because of the natural oils in the wood that can leach into your artwork. You may also get moisture in the wood because wood is very porous.  Ideally the wood should be sanded, sealed with a matte finish polyurethane sealer, then primed.  That is, if you're looking for a more archival piece, although, I am not sure if wood is even considered archival.  Just something to think about.
