If the GRE tunnel is the only traffic going across the MPLS link, something like:

class-map match-any Important

match . . .

policy-map QoS

class Important

bandwidth percent 50

fair-queue !if HQF

policy-map Shape6Mbps

class class-default

shape average 6000000

service-policy QoS

interface tunnel #

service-policy output Shape6Mbps
