Step 12
Inside the template literal, create a div element with the id set to the index from the .forEach() array method. Remember to use template interpolation to do this.

Also, add a class of user-card to the div.

How do I do this?

When you are assigning a string to innerHTML then you can literally just write the HTML as normal HTML, you don’t need to use JS methods to create elements and assign classes. Look back at the Shopping Cart course you completed. In particular, look at the code for creating the productsContainer HTML.

Thank you for this. I did not realize that was the case.
