    In font awesome icons,using stacking we can combine multiple icons and display it as one icon.

    To do that use the fa-stack class on the parent, the fa-stack-1x for the regularly sized icon, and fa-stack-2x for the larger icon.

    And use class fa-inverse for an alternative icon color.

            <i class='far fa-square fa-stack-2x'></i>
            <i class='fas fa-pencil fa-stack-1x'></i>
        </span>
          Pencil on fa-square<br>
        <span class='fa-stack fa-lg'>
