This is the only paragraph about the cards I could find that didn't have anything to do with painting roses, croquet, or tarts...
On which Seven looked up and said, 'That's right, Five! Always lay the blame on others!'
'You'd better not talk!' said Five. 'I heard the Queen say only yesterday you deserved to be beheaded!'
'What for?' said the one who had spoken first.
'That's none of your business, Two!' said Seven.
'Yes, it is his business!' said Five, 'and I'll tell him — it was for bringing the cook tulip-roots instead of onions.'
I'm reminded by this card, we've all worked, we've all had bosses who gave unclear instructions, most of us have probably been in trouble for doing a great job that turned out to be the wrong job. No need to go into inner turmoil, that kind of creativity registers in the bosses mind on some level and eventually comes in useful. This card is an example of creatively digging myself out of the 8 of Coins/Oysters hole.
