Like Eichorn said, it's possible to configure things like that, but there might be some surprising results with regards to routing, and traffic flowing from your host.

Whenever I see a question like this though, I wonder what you're actually trying to do. If you don't mind, it'd be interesting to hear about which problem you're trying to solve by configuring it like this. There's a good chance there could be a better way to solve things. 

If it's about load-balancing for example, then (dependig on switch etc), it could be a better idea to make a bundle out of the two interfaces, sharing their bandwidth.
