Also Felix's tutorial has a broken image and I have no idea how I'm supposed to use the masks to even get rounded edges.
1. Select the rounded rectangle tool.

2. Click + hold the shift key.


4. Hide the layer.

5. Ctrl + Click the vector mask thumbnail.

6. Select Layer 1 and then Select -> Inverse.

7. press the delete key to get rid of the selected edges.

8. Select -> Inverse again then Edit -> Stroke.

9. Voila!
