Consider the following HTML on a media site, where each card highlights a specific type of news post:

<div class="card highlight"></div>
<div class="card politics"></div>
<div class="card fashion"></div>

.card {
  border: color-mix(currentBackground, #ccc, 50%)

.highlight {
  background-color: yellow;

.fashion {
  background-color: blue;

.politics {
  background-color: green;

All cards should read from their background colors, but all background colors are unique. This is not an uncommon pattern.
