It sounds like you ran into this issue: "Why have the apps on my screen "shrunk" to 1/4 size?":

This issue, where apps seem to shrink to a quarter of the screen size, can happen if you're using iOS 5 (or later) and have one or more packages installed that contain a certain kind of bug (which is most common in packages that haven't been updated for iOS 5+ yet). You'll need to check your installed packages and read their descriptions carefully to make sure each one is compatible with your iOS version, and uninstall any of them that aren't. Also make sure you're using packages from legitimate repositories (such as BigBoss, Cydia/Telesphoreo, ModMyi, and ZodTTD/MacCiti) so that you know you have the best current versions available from the authors of your packages.

If that's what happened, neither Winterboard nor the theme caused it. The reason this issue can show up after installing Winterboard is because installing Winterboard requires rebooting. If you hadn't installed Winterboard and just rebooted normally, the issue still would have happened.
