You can add as many qualifications as you like, but without experience you're probably going to end up hosed. Right now, there are a lot of skilled developers looking for jobs (economic downturn and all that), and they have experience to bring to bat.

You basically have two options on your CV:

1. Lie, and hope that the hirer doesn't catch on. Not a good option because you will be caught out at some point.
2. Try to gain experience. Try your hand at helping out on an Open Source project, or volunteer your time codoing for a charity.
