Yes you can do that but you need to be careful with your redundancy.

Each SF/CPM-3 provides 50Gb/slot of switching capacity.
4x10Gbs x 3 across two cards means each IMM needs to support 60Gbps.
So you need to have both SF/CPM-3 cards working. If one fails, you will be down to 50Gb/s of fabric capacity to each IMM.
So there is no SF/CPM redundancy in that setup.
And with both working, you are limited to 100Gb/slot of throughput (so don't use more than ten ports on each IMM if you don't want to oversubscribe).
