Cut your 3 pieces of blue cardstock:

Medium piece to measure 5 ¼ by 2 ½.
Large piece to measure 5 ½ by 3 ½.

Now cut & glue your 2 penguin together.
The smaller penguin is 2 ¾ inches tall and the big penguin is 3 ½ inches.
When cutting out your pieces for the penguins make both cuts while you have each color loaded into your cricut eliminating extra time loading and unloading your mat in the cricut.

Select your blackout button & then the penguin button. 1st cut at 2 ¾ and then at 3 ½. You are keeping the outline of the penguin.
Next select the shift button & then the penguin button. 1st cut at 3 ½ since your already at this size then 2 ¾. You are keeping the rim of the penguin’s hat.
