- New image

- Filters→Decor→Rounded Corners

- (Perhaps delete the drop shadow and the new transparent background,
  Image→Fit to layers)

- Fill/paint over the three corners you don't want

- Image→Scale Canvas to whatever size you want

Your layer needs an alpha channel. Right-click the layer and add alpha
channel (not sure why it's called "add alpha channel" instead of "enable
transparency"...). Rounded Corners adds an alpha channel automatically
