Why not. Just attach the interlining to the lining and treat them as one. If it seems to loose or baggy just sew lines of straight stitching the length of the joined lining and interlining a few inches apart.

If you cut the interlining the width of the finished shade, then do your side hems, this will reduce any excess bulk. Do the same with the bottom hem. When you attach the rings, that should be enough to stablize all the layers and keep the interlining from stretching.

Is there a particular reason that the blinds should be interlined? Are you aiming to give thermal protection or room darkening, or just what is the intended purpose?
You can buy lining materials that offer such things and not have to interline to achieve it.
Your blinds would not fold up as crisply if there is an interlining, but that is not a major thing.
As was suggested, you may have to secure the interlining with stitching.
