Cardio WITH CORE: Cardio alone will not tone your tummy but will provide excellent aerobic benefits. However you can simultaneously perform cardio with core strengthening which will improve abdominal muscle tone.

Yes: If they use your abdominal muscles! fast walking, running, jogging, spinning etc are good examples.
Dr. Daniel Careaga

Tumy sag: Cardio workouts will help reduce the fat layer between your muscles and your skin which will definitely tone your abdomen. If there is excess skin it will need to be removed through a procedure called a tummy tuck. Loose skin that comes as a result of pregnancies and weight fluctuations does not shrink with exercise.

Exercise type: It may be about the type of exercise as much as the fact of exercise. I have found that pilates is the best for core development as well as sculpting the abdominals. Also consider what you are eating may be inhibiting wt loss. Stick to non processed foods to maximize nutrient density. This includes many so called "health bars".

Diet: Small changes in diet can make a difference in accumulation of body fat. Eating 3 meals a day. Not neglecting breakfest. Lowering the amount of simple carbohydrates. Specifically white flour, corn, potatoe and white rice, to exchange with squash, sweet potatoe, whole wheat, and brown rice. Not eating within 3-4 hours of bedtime.

Planks: Try planks. You hold yourself as if you were going to do push ups but don't go down. Hold as long as you can, then you can work on side planks to define the obliques.
