[scribus] clipping page to non-rectangular shape after printing

Hi folks,

I am doing business cards which have corners clipped to a custom shape 
copying logo printed on the paper. In practice, this is done by 
manufacturing a physical die, printing on rectangular media, and then 
clipping using the die (not all printing companies offer this, though, 
and it costs money). Is this capability present in scribus? The design 
process can be done without this, but preview would show non-rectangular 
page, and clipping path (serving to manufacture the die) could be 
exported to PDF.

I saw something like this done in Indesign/Illustrator, but not sure if 
there is native support for this or the designer merely created extra 
blank pages with the clipping path.

Thanks for suggestions/help.
