I just finished watching the anime for the first time and I loved it! I'm just curious as to why the Clear Card Arc didn't get confirmed until recent years? Was it a matter of popularity or money?

The story was already complete. The Clear Card Arc manga didn't begin until last year.

As for why they didn't make the Clear Card Arc until now

a) there's a fad for remakes/sequels of nostalgia things right now (e.g. Sailor Moon Crystal)
b) they probably wanted to finish Tsubasa first.

.... anyone know how the Clear Card Arc connects to Tsubasa? I'm not interested because I don't like Tsubasa (I think I like the idea, but not the way they did it). But if it's not too Tsubasa-related, I might be interested...

I wouldn't be worried about that, Tsubasa/xxxHolic world is separate. Other than the fact that it uses a bunch of universes so Sakura Kinomoto's universe could feasibly exist (and she does have cameos in the universe) there's not gonna be much references outside of that. So the most you'll probably see is Sakura Kinomoto getting in touch with other version sakura's in some dream sequence or Watanuki from xxxHolic somehow.

There were some fun theories when Tsubasa was on-going that one set or the other of Sakura/Syaoran in Tsubasa were the Syaoran/Sakura in CCS but it's doubtful that's the case:

What is Tsubasa anyway? I've seen it come up a few times but I'm kind of confused by it.

All of Clamps stuff stakes place in the same multiverse. Tsubasa is sort of a big crossover thing except not actually. It's more like they run into versions of those other characters. It gets really confusing later on, and you practically have to read xxx holic along side it, since they directly cross over so much.

A parallel Earth version of Sakura loses her memories, which are transformed into powerful feathers and scattered across other parallel Earths. Her boyfriend Syaoran wants to get the feathers back. Yuuko from XxxHolic sends him, a big bruiser ninja called Kurogane, and a mage called Fai, along with a version of Mokona (a parallel of the cute critter from Magic Knight Rayearth) on a grand adventure to collect the feathers. And there is a mysterious villain who is monitoring their progress.

Things go about the way you'd expect in the anime, with uplifting adventure, until the end of the main TV series. Then it gets back to following the manga, and nearly everything gets horrifically convoluted. Everything you thought you figured out about the series is wrong.
